PAWS' mission is to prevent cruelty to all animals by promoting humane standards through education and example, to provide care and shelter for homeless animals, aid in the reduction of domestic animal overpopulation, and aid in the enforcement of laws, including the investigation of animal cruelty and abuse. Our main goal is to provide the best possible care for the animals while in our custody and finding them new permanent, loving homes. Our attempts to place homeless animals into good homes help not only the animal but also provide a new owner with a loving companion and possibly a memorable life experience.

PAWS concentrates on promoting public awareness regarding animal welfare issues, pet health care, disaster preparedness, and most importantly, the necessity of spaying and neutering. We visit local schools, churches, and civic organizations in an effort to educate the public about what they can do to help the nationwide epidemic of pet overpopulation. PAWS also takes a role in rescue operations during a national disasters and we assist with large scale hording and cruelty cases. In addition, we have education programs for kids in schools and a therapy pet program in hospitals and nursing homes.

As the Director of the organization I work very hard to do right by animals, especially those who are abused and neglected. But we do not only serve the homeless pets, we also serve our community and many pet owners who experience hard times. We are here to help.
